Description
Drawing upon material from over 50 of Sherlock Holmes’s cases, a fascinating companion to the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930). This insightful book uncovers a treasure trove of details – revealing the links between Sherlock Holmes, modern science, and reflecting on how Conan Doyle’s medical training and interest in scientific advances informed his writing. Discussed topics encompass everything from fingerprints, marks, and handwriting to canny disguises, botany, poisons, physics, and ballistics. Sherlock Holmes is famed for his forensic reasoning and this intriguing survey considers many of his skills and methods – then at the cutting-edge of scientific enquiry – and how techniques have since developed into forensic science used today.
